“... when we are alerted to
high levels of absence, such as musculoskeletal problems in the factory, we can proactively address them because we now have clear trigger levels in place.”

“Across 11,800 staff, GoodShape helped to recoup 33,040 working days within 12 months - or the equivalent of returning 144 full-time staff to work.”

“We estimate that we’ve saved £152,000 in terms of increased productivity and efficiency savings. This means that the absence service has provided a great return on investment, and having more employees available to work gives us a far greater opportunity to deliver a good service for our customers.”

What is sick leave management?

Sickness absence management is the systematic approach to monitoring, recording, and managing unplanned employee absences due to illness or injury.

Effective absence management ensures that businesses can minimise the impact of absenteeism on productivity and business costs, maintain employee wellbeing, and ensure compliance with relevant employment laws and regulations.

Sick leave software provides businesses with a simple option for sickness management which encompasses the strategies, policies and tools that an organisation needs to track, analyse and manage sickness-related absence. 

It can be a real HR nightmare to keep track of your team’s attendance if you’re still relying on spreadsheets.

With GoodShape, you can:

  • Effectively track, analyse and manage employee absences
  • Explore user-friendly dashboards to monitor trends
  • Provide support for employees' return to work
  • Focus on employee wellbeing

What’s the problem with manual sick leave management?

Traditional methods of managing sickness absence, including paper-based records or spreadsheets, are often time-consuming, error-prone, and extremely inefficient. HR departments may struggle to accurately track absence, identify patterns or trends, and implement timely interventions to address the underlying issues, leading to a loss in productivity.

Manual absence management processes lack real-time visibility and actionable insights, which limits an organisation's ability to proactively manage absenteeism.

Reducing sickness absence by supporting employee wellbeing

With GoodShape, you can address the underlying causes of your employees' absenteeism, enabling you to provide tailored support that meets their personal needs.

Through thoughtful questioning, analysis of absence data, and the help of health and wellbeing services, GoodShape simplifies and improves the process of caring for your employees, promoting a positive and productive work environment.
